Do you want to embed a Google form in WordPress?

Google Forms are easy to embed anywhere and are particularly useful when you need to share the form on multiple websites. You can get feedback from your customers or audience without having to create and share multiple versions of surveys or questionnaires.

In this article, we will show you how to embed a Google form in WordPress.

Google Forms vs. WordPress Form Builders

Some of you may be wondering why anyone would want to use Google Forms when there are amazing form builder plugins like WPForms.

It is true that WordPress form builders are easier to use. They are integrated into your WordPress site, so you can show users a special offer, accept payments, create custom login forms, user registration forms, and more.

However, sometimes, you may need to share a form on different websites, email lists, and platforms so that all form responses are stored at the same location.

In such situations, Google Forms can be an easier option. These forms are easy to share, mobile-friendly, and get the job done. All responses are stored in your Google Drive, and you can even add collaborators to work on the form responses.

That said, let’s see how you add Google Forms to your WordPress site.

Creating a new form in Google Forms is quite simple. First, you need to provide a form title and description. Then, you can start adding your form fields.

To embed the Google form, click on the ‘Copy’ link to copy the embed code.

    is there a way to customize the look of the embedded form, like changing the background color or font, so it blends in better with my website’s design? I’d love to make the form match my site’s branding.

    • WPBeginner Support says

      The customization options would be found in the Google form’s settings when creating it :)

    I want to insert a form but customize the form and delete the last line “Google Form”, is it possible?

    • WPBeginner Support says

      You would need to have a paid plan for removing the branding and some form customizations at the moment.

    I’m trying to embed a google form into my wordpress site. but im having issues with the height. ive tried multiple things to change the height but nothing seems to work.

    It also seems to only be an issue with google forms ( i haven’t tried and other google product) but its try to embed a random page and adjust the dimensions it works just fine.

    Any advice will be great!!

    I have a long Google Form and would like to have the ability for people to save the form as they go, and be able to return to it. Will this plugin allow you to do that?

  6. Ande Anderson says

    After creating a Google Form and clicking on the “Send” button all I get is an email to send to someone saying “I’ve invited you to fill out a form:”. There is no URL for the form to put into my wordpress website.
